In case you live under a rock, or avoid all versions of the sham that we call Mass Media in the USA, then you don’t know the gloriously sad, albeit oddly ironic, news that President Obama has planned to sign yet another Executive Order – what was this one about? Immigration! What does it do?
“The executive action will have two key components:
- It would offer a legal reprieve to the undocumented parents of U.S. citizens and permanent residents who’ve resided in the country for at least five years. This would remove the constant threat of deportation. Many could also receive work permits.
- It would expand the 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that allowed young immigrants, under 30 years old, who arrived as children to apply for a deportation deferral and who are now here legally. Immigrants older than 30 now qualify, as do more recent arrivals.”
Ok, so we could debate whether that is a good thing or not. Heck, loads of people are, in fact, some are going so far as wanting to impeach El Hefe. I know right? I am not going to expand on my perspective on the subject but I will talk a bit about the tremendous amount of hypocrisy that is tossed around by the illustrious members of our government. So sit back, Ladies and Gentlemen, and enjoy the show.
“After researching public records, newspaper articles, civil court transcripts, and criminal records, Capitol Hill Blue discovered that:
* 29 members of Congress have been accused of spousal abuse.
* 7 have been arrested for fraud.
* 19 have been accused of writing bad checks.
* 117 have bankrupted at least two businesses.
* 3 have been arrested for assault.
* 71 have credit reports so bad they can’t qualify for a
* 14 have been arrested on drug-related charges.
* 8 have been arrested for shoplifting.
* 21 are current defendants in lawsuits.
* And in 1998 alone, 84 were stopped for drunk driving, but released after they claimed Congressional immunity.”
Let us consider a few:
“Senator Mike Crapo (R-ID) was arrested on December 23, 2012 and later pleaded guilty to drinking and driving in a Virginia court. The court fined him 250 dollars. He was sentenced to 180 days in prison, but served no time.”
– I loved this one as one of the arguments made by members of Congress is immigrants not being responsible drivers.
“Rick Renzi (R-AZ) on June 12, 2013 was found guilty of 17 of the 32 counts against him, including wire fraud, conspiracy, extortion, racketeering, money laundering and making false statements to insurance regulators. (2013)”
– You know, all immigrants break the law! They ignore it! Oh wait, so does this guy.
“Samuel B. Kent (R) The Federal District Judge of Galveston, Texas was sentenced on May 11, 2009, to 33 months in prison for having lied about sexually harassing two female employees. He had been appointed to office by George H. W. Bush in 1990. (2009)”
– Maybe if the females that he harassed were illegal aliens then maybe they wouldn’t have come forward. Granted amnesty to immigrants can only lead to more coming forward about the wrong doings made against them right? Horrible!
“Trey Radel (R-FL) was convicted of misdemeanor possession of cocaine in November, 2013. As a first time offender, he was sentenced to one year probation and fined $250. Radel announced he would take a leave of absence, but did not resign. Later, under pressure from a number of Republican leaders, he announced through a spokesperson that he would do so. (2013)”
– Wait, he used drugs? Those pesky illegals, always bringing in the drugs – and if we make them citizens then it will be easier for them to traffic drugs here right? Obviously.
Any time I think of Congress I recall the Duran Duran song, Wild Boys, perfectly describes the members of Congress.
Consider these lyrics:
“You got sirens for a welcome
There’s bloodstain for your pain
And your telephone been ringing while
You’re dancing in the rain
Wild boys wonder where is glory
Where is all you angels
Now the figureheads have fell
And lovers war with arrows over
Secrets they could tell”
Have a listen:
